Yeah, well that's deeply sad, but it's about time political leaders understood that the needs of 25 million people trump the needs of 35,000. It's a numbers game.

oh, donít get me wrong. I completely agree with what you are saying and that there needs to be a reduction. I am just playing the typical leftie. And showing their utter hypocrisy. And the complicity of the mainstream media.

Sorry, I missed the irony. I have a serious sense of humour failure at the moment.

Yep. Provided that includes politicians, 'special' people from DFAT, sportspeople, investors etc.

Goverment just waiting until the majority understand they will need to vaccinate , closing country , closing borders and lockdowns will continue until the majority accept vaccinations is only way out . Blaming government for this is like blaming your union for slide in COS . Its up to the members / citizens to do something .

This is a really good ploy,get all premiers to agree & put the pressure right on scomo.
Instead of him sitting back & telling us its up to the individual states to nominate arrival caps etc,let him now grow a set & sort out his vaccine mess & whilst hes at it address his idiotic deputy for his mask wearing fiasco.
Whether u agree with masks or not,if this turkey ignores the rules well he needs to face the consequences(X10).

except for the messaging.

itís not a race,
AZ for adults.
Az only over 50s
wait , AZ only over 60s
hangon, AZ for everyone,
and hurry up and get it!! Itís a race!

then add the fact they knocked back Pfizer for a Israeli style total vaccination plan that would have had us 40M doses by now.
they do perhaps deserve some blame.

I think you will find a large majority of movements abroad are not overly critical or necessary. Then we need to deal with them on the return. I know one young bloke who went over to see his online lover in the states. He transferred his university studies to a American campus and he got the green light in. Now he is coming back.

The first and primary role of a government is to look after its own citizens.

They simply cannot stop people arriving if they are citizens. It is unconscionable. They tried it for five minutes and gave up.

They can however prevent people leaving.

Problem there is people play the game by leaving on one passport, but when they need to come back to Australia to get away from Covid they whip out their Australian Passport and demand to be let in.

All I know is that when this mess first started there were Thirty Thousand Australians overseas that wanted to come back. 18 months on, that number has not changed. Someone is taking the pi$$.

15 months in, still locking down for a couple of cases. What they should be saying is you are free to move about (with masks) if you are fully vaccinated. Those of you who aren't, remained seated.

should, but practically policing it.. you would have to carry your little vaccine passport with you everywhere. Which of course would never happen. I think stopping everyone on the street, checking their papersÖ. Oh I forgot it,Ö logistically never going to happen.

bully for you,

is that mandatory. It would have to be.. or to carry a physical form of proof of vaccine.

and how are you going to police it without stopping everyone on the street. Papers please…..logistically impossible.

Foxxster - Itís the Medicare app on your phone. You can save the digital certificate offline within the app. The digital certificate also has holographic features which makes it extremely difficult to forge.
No different to the NSW digital driverís licence.
